Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hello again 2B!

Whilst staying safe at home, I’ve spent lots time baking some treats to share with my family.
One of my favourite things to bake is chocolate chip cookies.

 

Here is my recipe to follow if you want to make some at home.

You will need:

1. Wash your hands using soap and water

2. Ask an adult to pre-heat the oven at 180.

3. Grease/ line a baking tray and set to one side.

4. Measure out 100g of margarine into a bowl.

5. Add 75g of light brown sugar to the margarine.

6. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix the margarine and sugar.

7. Add 30g of golden syrup.

8. Add 100g of chocolate chips.

9. Add 175g of self-raising flour.

10. Mix together.

11. Add 2 tbsp of milk.

12. Mix to create a soft dough.

13. Take a small amount of dough, roll into a ball and flatten to create the cookies and place on the baking tray. (The recipe makes around 12-16 cookies depending on how big you make them)

14. Ask an adult to put the cookies in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

15. Ask an adult to take the cookies out of the oven and allow to cool before eating.

Socially Distanced Hands

Hello again 2B.

I’ve been missing seeing my friends and family whilst I have been keeping safe at home- and I’m sure you have too!
I have been learning more about Coronavirus from Doctor Dog and finding out what I have to do to keep safe and why.

Because we have to stay apart from our friends and family and can’t give them a hug or a high-five at the minute, I’ve made some socially-distanced hands so I can give them a hand shake or high-five from a safe distance.
I thought you might like to make some too, so that you can use them with your friends and family.

 

You will need:

1. Draw round your hand 2 times on some coloured card (or paper if you don’t have any card)

2. Cut out your hands

3. Find a tie, scarf or piece of material that is roughly 2m long. I’ve used one of my Dad’s ties because they are a perfect length!

4. Staple (or attach in some way) your hands to each end of your 2m length of material

5. Your socially-distanced hands are ready to use!

Making my socially-distanced hands…

I think it is…

Why not take some photos and videos of you using your socially-distanced hands with your friends and family? Don’t forget to send them to us via ClassDojo or using birch@ladywood.bolton.sch.uk
